Breakout: Engaging Local Government Employees
Everyone knows the old adage of “take care of your employees and they’ll take care of you.” But how do you measure whether you’ve taken care of your employees? New studies suggest that employee engagement can be a way to measure how well your organization is motivating and developing local government staff. In this session attendees will learn what it means to engage employees and how to do so effectively. Especially in local government where resources are slim to provide bonuses or promotional opportunities. Come to ‘Building Engaged Employees’ to hear from two practitioners and a human resources expert on how to motivate, develop, and engage employees as well as why employee engagement matters. This session will build off the other ‘Workforce of the Future’ sessions on how to engage the diverse, inclusive workforce you have worked hard to recruit and retain.
